The annual Ribchester Spring May Market is set to return this year, with organisers seeking stall holders.

The market, which is held on the second May bank holiday Monday, will be outdoors at Bee Mill from 9am.

Organiser Andrew Wallin has confirmed the return of the market after getting the go ahead from Ribble Valley council.

He said: "It's exciting to bring the market back.

Last year, due to the lockdown, the market was cancelled. Andrew added: "We were worried last year around February when Covid-19 started growing but when the lockdown hit we just had to cancel it completely."

Despite the market being able to go ahead however the indoor market is unable to take place this year as the event is classified as a fete meaning it must be an outdoor only event.

In spite of this, Andrew is hoping that enough people will be looking to hold stalls outside.

The market is looking for stall holders in a range of areas including a perennial stall, classic bric-a-brac stalls as well as others.

Currently, Andrew has got a kids games area organised and a fruit and vegetable market stall for the late May market.

In previous years, the market has been a huge success with thousands turning up and over 80 stalls at the event in 2019.
